#DearMe - Just Be Yourself! :)

In celebration of International Women's Day YouTube launched global #DearMe initiative to inspire and empower young girls everywhere... :) This is a simple and very short letter to my younger self: all I have to say is... JUST BE YOURSELF! Love who you are, no matter what they say! You are unique! Be unique, be different... be proud of who you are, even if they don't understand you. It's ok to be a little strange... and no one has the right to make you feel bad for who you are or for what you dream! :D It's ok to be yourself! There is just ONE of you on this planet: you are a precious treasure!

Please, please, please, forgive my terrible English (horrible pronunciation, awful grammar! xD)!! and... excuse my silly voice! xD

Makeup Base Favourites!

Speaking of everyday makeup routine... what are the favourites for your makeup base?! And what is the best foundation that you have ever tried?! And what about concealer? ...Do you have a favourite product for contouring?

I posted a video here on my second channel with my everyday makeup base (if you speak Italian, that's my first channel)... 
I'm not a makeup artist, but I enjoy playing with colours and different products like your average woman! ;-)

Anyway, these are my favourite things at the moment...

When I feel like it, I start with a natural primer (Neve Cosmetics Mattifying Primer), because even if I don't use only organic products... having one to use before anything else as a natural "barrier" on my skin is something that I enjoy greatly! :)

What about foundation? I'm into Nars Sheer Glow and Rimmel Wake Me Up at the moment, and I like them both!

The Radiant Creamy Concealer by Nars is amazing, but if you prefer a cheaper alternative there is always the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer that's a  wonderful product for a really good price (it's under £5, and it's really one of the best concealers that I have ever tried).

And if you are in need of it... the Benecos Compact Powder is a really good organic powder!

Now, I admit that I'm not really into contouring, nor I'm good at it! xD But... I like to try new things! So I'm experimenting using the Taupe Blush by Nyx (everyone says that is perfect on very fair skin!). And of lately I'm trying Bahama Mama by The Balm that I love as well (even if is definitely darker)...

My favorite highlighters are Goddess of Love by I Heart Makeup, and Mary-Lou Manizer by theBalm. Especially Mary-Lou Manizer that is... I can't even say! It's a glorious product in my humble opinion! Probably the best highlighter I have ever used in my life!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz is a brow pencil that I literally adore... and it is what I use if I don't want to go wrong! xD

Speaking of blush... I have a number of favourites! But, probably, the one that I use the most is Peachykeen by Mac!

And that's my essential list for a perfect makeup base, guys! 
I'm incredibly curious to hear about your all time favourites!! :)
